(GSM) – Los Angeles Galaxy scored an injury time equaliser to take a point from their away match at Chicago Fire on Saturday.
Western Conference leaders LA Galaxy hoped to recover from two consecutive defeats and had a perfect opportunity to get things under way at Chicago when given a penalty in the first half.
But Landon Donovan, often successful from the spot, had his effort saved by Chicago goalkeeper Johnson.
Despite being a man down – Gonzalo Segares was sent off for the foul that caused the penalty – Chicago continued to offer resistance at their own Toyota Park in Bridgeview.
And in the 88th minute, former Fulham player Collins John even put the home side in the lead as he sent a low free kick into the far corner.
But LA leveled in the first minute of added time with Omar Gonzalez heading home from a Donovan corner kick.
Los Angeles are certain to end the week in the Western Conference lead but may begin to feel the pressure from Real Salt Lake who could reduce the gap to just one point. Chicago remain in fifth position in the Eastern Conference.
